Blood of Billions Pre-Order!

Before we get to the pre-order business, let me tell you a little something about this book. First: it’s the best stuff I’ve ever written. Hands-down. Not only that, it was the hardest book I’ve tackled. It’s the one I had the most doubts about. The one I agonized over. When I started writing Land of Light, I contemplated restricting the Bern Saga to three books. Looking back on how much hand-wringing I did over that decision, it seems a bit silly.

I spoke for an hour or so with the middle schoolers (Half of that was my talk on writing and reading, the other half was a Q&A).

That means you early adopters get sloppy seconds (yeah, e-book formatting gets real sloppy compared to the nice, neat layout of print material). This seems crazy to me. The goal is to get people reading your words; and e-books offer convenience, benefits to the environment, and portability not shared by physical books. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ll…
